The Universe of Us, by Lang Leav

The Universe of Us

What It’s About

A series of short poems about being in love.

Why I Think You’d Like It

Because these poems made me revisit the feeling of being in love in a way that I hadn’t felt since I was a kid. Because they made me feel, viscerally, types of falling in love that I’d never experienced before. Because they made me look back on the disappointing experiences of love that I had thought of as unworthy of poetry, and see the beauty in them.

Because they’re beautiful and insightful and made me hold my breath. Not figuratively took my breath away. Sometimes, I’d hit the end of a line and stop breathing for a little bit.
